2019 Mataburro 'Otium' Red Blend

Otium 2019 is predominantly Grenache, but also contains Grenache Gris, Carignan and Macabeu. Grapes were all hand-harvested at the same time, whole bunch foot pressed to release a small amount of juice followed by 7 days on skins. A different type of semi-carbonic maceration as described by Laurent. Ethereal, clean and delicious. Technically a red but drinks almost like a dark rosé or Jura red. Unripe rainier cherries, raspberries and strawberries. Acidity strong, tannins soft and a really light body. Incredible value and only 2 available due to the scarcity of these prized wines.

About the maker

Relatively fresh into the natural wine scene, Mataburro is Laurent Roger and Melissa Ingrand’s project named for the railway line that was known to kill three donkeys shortly after opening in 1910.

Although relatively new on the market, the Mataburro wines are already highly sought after and once you try you will understand why. Laurence's family has a long history of winemaking, with three hectares of Grenache in Rivesaltes planted by his grandfather in 1949. To maximise soil life and quality there is no ploughingg, using green manure planting instead. Vineyards are worked organically with the only treatments used sulphur, copper and some essential oils. Winemaking uses native yeast with no fining or filtration. Soils are mostly clay on limestone with some galets roulés for the old Grenache vines and deep clays for the Merlot. Climate is Mediterranean with maritime influence. The wines are known for their delicacy and freshness, the mark of Laurent’s teacher shining through.
